This report gives results of the 2009 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT in eastern and southern Africa. The trials evaluated elite pre-release and released maize germplasm supplied by CIMMYT, National Agricultural Research Programs, and private seed companies from the region. CIMMYT received the germplasm, grouped it according to vigor and maturity, and formed six replicated trials. These results are useful for National Agricultural Research Programs, private seed companies and seed distributing agencies.
